Lola Westbrook

October 2, 1933 — April 15, 2023

Lola Mae Westbrook, 89, returned to her Lord and Savior on Saturday, April 15, 2023, at her earthly home, surrounded by loved ones. Love and devotion to her family and her great faith in God carried her through struggles with many health issues.

Visitation will be 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., Tuesday, April 18, 2023, at The Hamil Family Funeral Home, 6449 Buffalo Gap Road, Abilene. Funeral services will be 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, April 19, 2023, at North Park Baptist Church, 1525 Anson Ave., Abilene. Burial will follow in Elmwood Memorial Park.

Lola Mae Westbrook was born to the late Dexter W. Armstrong and Hattie Monty (Smith) on October 2, 1933, in Lynn County, Texas. She attended school in Elmdale and Abilene, Texas, and worked for Abilene State Supported Assisted Living Center until her retirement in 2007.

Lola Mae married Arnold Clinton Westbrook on August 4, 1950, and they spent 66 wonderful years together, all of which were in Abilene. Four children were born to their union - Roger Dale (Debra Ann) of Smithville, TX, Ronnie Lance of Abilene, Gary Wayne (Debra Kay) of Abilene and Lori Denise Charles-Roberts (Andrew) of Sydney, B.C., Canada.

Her steadfast pursuit of Christ's example made obvious to all those who knew her, her love and devotion to God our Father. She lived a legacy of love and is a hero of our faith.

Left to cherish Lola Mae's memory are her four children and spouses; 14 grandchildren by blood and marriage (Mark, Kellie, Jason, Amanda, Amy, Bradley, Renee', Jeremy, Clay, Tisha, Ethan, Quincy, Bethany and Jeremiah); as well as 13 great-grandchildren (Asa, Dalton, Jaydon, Zane, Elizabeth, Alex, Rebekah, Peyton, Nolan, Wyatt, Ian, Isla, Charlie Mae, and Mack); and great-great granddaughter, Londyn Lundren. She is also survived by her brother, Bill Armstrong and sister, Evelyn Anderson; sister-in-law, Chris Jones; many loving cousins, nieces and nephews; and her grand dog, Chase.

Pallbearers will be grandsons, Mark, Jason, Clay and Ethan Westbrook, Bradley Clary, and Jeremy Eaves.

A special "thank you" to the entire Hospital and Hospice staff at Hendrick Medical Center for their excellence in care these past few weeks.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Education and Mission Fund at North Park Baptist Church, Abilene.
